TIRANA, June 7
Following the report issued by the European Environment Agency on the conditions of bathing sites in EU countries, Switzerland, and Albania, the National Environment Agency presented the data from the latest survey on water quality in the coastline for 2017. According to the findings of the survey, the quality of water in bathing sites in Albania has improved.
Chair of the agency Julian Beqiri said that some 102 bathing sites were monitored.
“The results show that 99 sites meet excellent water bathing quality,” Beqiri said.
On the other hand, he highlighted that sand quality leaves much to be desired.
“During our surveys, we noticed problems concerning the sand quality. There are no trash cans. Meanwhile, local power institutions need to work more in order to provide information on beach and water quality to vacationers,” Beqiri added.
Based on the results of this survey the beaches with an excellent water quality are in Divjaka, Velipoja, Tale, Shengjin, Lalzit Bay, Golem, Qerret, Spille, Orikum, Zvernec, Vlora, Dhermi, Himara, Qeparo, Borsh, Ksamil, Saranda, Seman, Durres, and Palasa.
Further on, the beaches with good bathing water standards are in Vlora at the Navy School area, in Saranda at Cuka strait, in Durres at Giardino complex.
The quality of bathing water deteriorated in Durres, respectively at Zhiron Beach and at the strait in Plepa area.
